aid 



OTTAWA (CUP) - Ontario uni- 
versities, suffering from pro- 
vincial government funding cut- 
backs have been told to borrow 
money from banks If they can- 
not make ends meet. 

The Council of Ontario Uni- 
versities announced on Monday 
that Laurentian and Carleton 
Universities may be forced to 
borrow from banks to cover 
large budget deficits. 

Ontario Education Minister 
Betty Stephenson said there is 
no money available to assist 
the universities’ financial trou- 
bles and that she had no ob- 
jections to them borrowing 
money from banks to cover 
deficits. 

"Why should I object to them 
going to the bank?" said 
Stephenson. 

"They are autonomous fin- 
ancial institutions and can 
make whatever financial decis- 
ions they think necessary." 

Carleton administrative vice 
president Albert Larose said 
the university will have 
deficit of more than $1 ,000,000 
by the end of the current school 
year. 

Larose blames the problems 
on insufficient government 
funding and a decline in enrol- 
ment, especially In the arts and 
science faculties. 

"I don’t know what the 
answer is", he said. 

"Something has got to give 
It can’t go on the way it Is." 

Stephenson denied that the 
government has reduced fund- 
ing to universities but admitted 
that government grants have 
not allowed the universities to 
keep pace with inflation. 

Laurentian University Presi- 
dent Henry Best says the uni- 
versity currently has a debt of 
more than $500,000 and will be 
close to a $1,000,000 deficit by 
the end of the school year. 

"I don’t want to go the bank”, 
said Best. “I don’t tike deficit 
financing. It doesn’t make 
much sense If it Is going to be 
an endless process."

For healthy 
stress don’t love 
all thy neighbours 



by Peter Thompson 
. Is there a rational, universal 
code of human behaviour? 

Former McGill professor Dr. 
Hans Selye, Internationally 
respected expert on stress and 
its effects on human life, is 
convinced there is. 

After a lifetime of research 
on the subject Dr. Selye says, "I 
have found enough evidence to 
justify trying to develop a code 
of behaviour based only on the 
laws of nature." 

Such claims have often been 
made before but Dr. Selye’s 
thesis Is based on sound 
research and unassailable 
qualifications. 



a news conference called to 
publicize a fund raising drive by 
the IIS and the Monte Carlo 
symposium. 

. A frail, soft spoken man with 
thinning white hair, Dr. Selye 
emphasized that stress is “the 
nonspecific response of the 
body to any demand." 

In fact, the concept includes 
"eustress," the demand for 
adaptation to pleasant ex- 
periences, as well as 
"distress." 

A moderate number of stress 
is beneficial to the human 
organism, aiding the per- 
formance of challenging tasks.

Survey shows you haven’t 
come that long a way baby 



by Bill Tieleman 
Canadian University Press 
OTTAWA— A Statistics Canada 
survey has confirmed what 
many people suspected for 
years— women are consistently 
paid less than their male 
-counterparts, even when they 
. have obtained a post-secondary 
education degree or certificate. 

The survey results will also 
shock those who believe that 
their bachelor's degrees will 
find them a job in their field. 
Only 42 per cent of the survey 
respondents with bachelor's 
degrees said their current jobs 
are directly related to their 
/jniversity studies. Twenty per 
cent of the degree holders said 
their jobs actually had no 
relation whatsoever to their 
studies. 

The StatsCan survey was 
probably the most comprehen- 
sive examination of the Canad- 
ian post-secondary education 
graduate situation ever done. 
The pollsters interviewed 
29,609 students who in 1976 
completed requirements for a 
university degree or college 
diploma or certificate. That’s 



about one-third of all Canadian 
graduates for that year. 

The StatsCan intervidws took 
place In June 1978, approxi- 
mately two years after the 
graduates had completed their 
requirements. Some of the 
survey’s conclusions were: 

• Women holding bachelor 
degrees are being paid from 
$1,000 to $4,000 less per year 
than men with the same degree 
in every field, except fine and 
applied arts' and the 
humanities. 

• Women with a masters 
degree, except in the humani- 
ties field, fare even worse. The 
survey, which compared med- 
ian rather than averaged salar- 
ies to get a more accurate 

picture, found wage differences 
of about $1,500 per year In 
mathematics and physical sci- 
ences up to a high of almost 
$7,000 per year In the health 
professions field. Differences 
In salary between men and 
women with PhDs were similar 
but because of the small num- 
ber of women with doctorates 
the survey could not compile 
enough results for any conclu- 



sions. , 

• There are more women with 
degrees or certificates looking 
for full-time work than men In 
almost every field. 

• Only 42 per cent of the 
bachelor degree graduates feel 
their jobs are directly related to 
their studies. Broken down Into 
fields, 65 per cent of those in 
education got directly related 
jobs at the top of the scale 
while only 22 per cent of 
humanities graduates found 
directly related work. 

• Sixty-five per cent of the 
country's college graduates did 
find directly related jobs. 

• Overall 83.5 per cent of 
1976 post-secondary education 
graduates had found full-time 
work. The most employable 
fields in university were busi- 
ness management and comm- 
erce, health professions and 
engineering and applied sci- 
ences, with about 95 per cent of 
the bachelor graduates emp- 
loyed by' June, 1978. At the 
colleges, data processing and 
computer science programs are

Too much stress, however, 
leads to very specific diseases 
the most dangerous of which 
are ulcers, mental illness, 
circulatory disorders and 
cardiac arrest. 

One of the most recent 
public examples of stress in- 
duced illness was Richard 
Nixon's Watergate phlebitis. 

The first signs of undue 
stress, according to Dr. Selye, 
are anxiety, accident 
proneness and general unease. 

To avoid the ill effects of 
stress he recommends his 
"universal code of behaviour." 

(1) Find your own stress level— 
the speed at which you can run 
toward your own goal. Make 
sure that both the stress level 
and the goal are really your 
own, and not Imposed by 
society. 

(2) Be an altruistic egoist. Do 
not try to suppress the natural 
instinct of all living beings to 
look after themselves first. Yet 
the wish to be of some use, to 
do some good to others, is also 
natural. We are social beings, 
and everybody wants somehow 
to earn respect and gratitude. 

(3) Earn thy neighbor’s love. 

This is a contemporary 
modification of the maxim 
"love thy neighbor as thyself". 
It recognizes that all neighbors 
are not lovable and that it is 
impossible to love on com- 
mand; 

Erratum 

In an article appearing in 
yesterday's Daily it was 
erroneously reported that 
temporary funds had already 
been made available to 
students affected by the loans 
and bursaries strike. 

Such a program has, in fact, 
not yet been implemented; it 
is only being contemplated.

by Stephen Lazer 

A summer movie retrospective poses a bit of 
a dilemma: Is one supposed to deal only with 
“summer movies" (a more or less definable 
genre), or simply with films that have opened 
during recent months. I have selected the latter 
method for the former which while allowing 
adequate discourse on Meatballs and Players 
(definitely summer movies), would preclude 
metlon of Apocalypse Now, Orchestra Rehear- 
sal, and several other films worth mentioning. 
So our category Is films that have opened 
since mid-May. 

Before beginning I should make the reader 
aware of a couple of things. I make no attempt 
to be complete and thus many favourites will 
doubtless go unmentioned (it was with infinite 
chagrin that my editor received the news that I 
managed to see neither Prophecy nor Sidney 
Sheldon's Bloodline). On the other hand, 
several of these pictures deserve much more 
comment than the one or two paragraphs I 
shall give them. I hope to review these at a 
later date. All caveats thus given, onwardl 
Allen 

Ridley Scott's horror qua science fiction has - 
been one of the box office sensations of the 
season. I'm not sure why this is so, but it 
probably has something to do with the fact 
that 12-14 year olds don't have much else to do 
during the summer. The film is not really very 
scary; but It is' occasionally disgusting 
enough to cause one to avert one’s eyes from 
the screen and thus Is bound to appeal to that 
demographic group called adolescents. 

The plot surrounds a group of astronauts 
who accldentaly allow a hostile creature 



aboard their vehicle. This Is not at all a bad 
idea for a horror film; the notion of being 
trapped In outer space with an unknown being 
is potentially horrifying. The movie’s problems 
lie elsewhere. At its basic level Alien suffers 
from an acute lack of imagination. Most of the 
scenes meant to be frightening are gimmicks 
—and clichèd gimmicks at that. One always 
knows well In advance when to avert one’s 
head. And neither the film’s slow pace nor the 
cast's uninspired acting do much to compel 
one to watch. The much publicized special 
effects are good; but In and of themselves are 
not enough to save Allen. This Is too bad 
because the Idea is sound; and with Improved 
pacing, Imagination and acting it could have 
been a good movie. 

The Amltyville Horror 

The Amltyville Horror suffers from much the 
same ailment as Allen. Director Stuart Rosen- 
berg uses every trick In the book to try to 
frighten us. But precisely because they are in 
the book we know what to expect and are 
therefore not frightened. Yet The Amltyville 
Horror does not even have Alien's advantages: 
The basic plot device of Allen is potentially 
mortifying. On the other hand the Idea of 
tenants moving into a house that dislikes them 
and scares' them away is a bit harder to get 
excited about. The Amltyville Horror is in 
trouble from the first. James Brolin and 
Margot Kidder do not do the one thing that Is 
demanded of an actor In a horror film: that Is, 
make their fear so believable that It draws the 
audience Into their nightmare. Rod Steiger 
makes a gallant try at the part of a priest; but 
the role is so absurd there is little he can do. 



Apocalypse Now 

Francis Ford Coppola's long awaited 
Vietnam epic is at least a little disappointing. 
The film demands more comment that I can 
give it here, yet I will make what crude 
headway I can. Mr. Coppola has attempted two 
things: to capture the sights, sounds, and 
feelings of war, and to explore the sub- 
conscious, primitive side of human nature that 
is dealt with in Joseph Conrad's Heart of Dark- 
ness. In the first .enterprise where it is a 
meditation on war Apocalypse Now is often 
masterful. Brilliant cinematography combined 
with sure direction and compelling acting 
produce scenes that are realistic, mind bogg- 
ling, strangely beautiful and above all moving 
and frightening. After a scene of a helicopter 
attack led by a Major Kilgore (played. brilliantly 
by Robert Duvall) one sits back in awe. If 
Coppola wished to depict an environment that 
is in opposition to what we view as civilization 
he should have stopped there. Unfortunately 
he does not. 

The handling of the Conrad tale fails for 
various reasons; most importantly that the 
screenplay ignores certain factors that make 
Heart of Darkness work. In the last 30 minutes 
of the film when the Conrad mode (i.e. the 
Kurtz story) comes to dominate the film in the 
place of the consideration of war what we are 
watching seems absurd. In fact, it is as if we 
are watching a different movie. Coppola went 
to great lengths to draw a stunning frame of 
reference and then abandoned it. 

These flaws are fairly fatal. Luckily, Apoca- 
lypse Now is made largely in segments and

A fresh look at summer films 





* \ 



i n t 





enough of these are good enough to make the 
film well worth seeing. The soundtrack Is, for 
the most part, effective. The acting of Martin 
Sheen, Ferderlck Forrest, Albert Hall, and 
Larry Flshburne Is great. Mr. Duvall Is down- 
right breathtaking. Marlon Brando has under- 
gone much criticism for his rendering of 
Kurtz; but, In fairness it should be stated that 
the performance is no more his fault than that 
of the screenwriter who created the ridiculous 
part he had to play. 

Breaking Away 

If Allen should have been better, Peter Yates’ 
Breaking Away should never have been as 
good as it Is. Films about young people 
experiencing the pains of growing up are. a 
dime a dozen, and I would not have thought 
the genre had so much room left for 
originality. Nor would I have guessed that Mr. 
Yates (Bullitt) could have made such a suc- 
cessful divergence from his past work. The 
director has proved me wrong on both counts. 

Breaking Away stands out because it Is about 
real people— so much so that we forget we are 
watching actors on the screen. The story of 
boys growing up in an Indiana university town, 
though .obviously exagerated, Is, at a very 
basic level, believable. Though the situations 
are overstated we can Identify with the 
emotions. This, combined with the film’s great 
sense of humour (Breaking Away Is among the 
funniest movies released In quite a while) 
creates an atmosphere In which we do not 
mind the movie’s blatantly sentimental ending. 
The cast of unknowns (led by Dennis 
Christopher and Paul Dooley) are first rate. 
Breaking Away Is one of those rare films that Is 
happy and funny without being mindless; In- 
deed It often shows a much deeper under- 
standing of people than pictures that pretend 
to much deeper discoveries. It stands out as 
one of the best made, most enjoyable, and 
certainly the most surprising films of the 
summer. 

Escape From Alcatraz 

Don Siegel’s Escape From Alcatraz Is not so 
much an original film as Improved work within 
an existent formula. Everyone knows It. Clint 
Eastwood Is a tough guy placed In a forbidding 
situation. The plot of the movie relates how he 
gets himself out of it. What separates this 
from other Eastwood films Is that It Is well 
made. Thrills are not gotten through gratuitous 
violence (in fact Escape From Alcatraz Is 
hardly violent at all). The direction Is not 
shoddy. The pace is not uneven. . v 

Escape From Alcatraz Is simply a well made 
film. Mr. Selgel sets a pace that keeps us on 




pag«6/Th«McQIII Daily _ 



the edge of our seats, waiting for the next step 
In the well conceived, intricate plot. The 
editing is what one would wish In a film of this 
sort. Though Mr. Eastwood does quite well, 
the other characters are, on the whole, 
one-sided and this is one area In which the film 
suffers. Escape From Alcatraz Is not a great 
film, nor even a great action film; but It is a 
good one— certainly the. best we have seen 
from Mr. Eastwood In a while. The film 
manages to convey a real sense of excitement, 
which Is what the director, and the formula 
Itself, aimed at. 

Manhattan 

Woody Allen's latest film Is of a piece with 
his best work. Never before have his grand 
sense of humour and the serious questions he 
raises about human relationships been so 
finely meshed. Further, Mr. Allen continues to 
amaze me In the way In which he points out all 
that Is truly funny In a normal day’s events and 
paranoias. 

Manhattan follows a few days In the life of 
Isaac Davis, a New York television writer 
(played by Mr. Allen). He has been divorced 
twice and is presently seeing a 17-year-old girl 
(Marlel Hemingway). Yet he Is embarrassed by 
this and moves on to an older woman (Diane 
Keaton). Thus the plot Is fairly pimple, yet 
within its bounds Mr. Allen manages to 
explore many of .the facets of human relation- 
ships. The film Is sometimes funny, some- 
times biting, and sometimes sad in Its 
depiction of the ways In which people are cruel 
to those who care for them most. 

Mahnattan Is certainly not without Its funny 
moments (for example the entire Gershwin 
soundtrack Is a sophisticated Joke), yet It has 
proved a disappointment to many of the fans 
of the slapstick Allen of Sleeper and Bananas. 
Yet for those who have followed Allen's 
maturation as a filmmaker Manhattan Is a 
welcome step forward. 

Meatballs 

I don't have much to say about Meatballs, 
probably because there isn't that much to say. 
The film Is the story of one summer at a camp 
, In which Bill Murray (of Saturday Night Live) Is 
a head counselor. The various adventures It 
chronicles occasionally produce a chuckle but 
usually not. With the exception of.Mr. Murray 
(who has some degree of comic talent) the cast 
made no Impression. The film was obviously 
made with the summer audience of ten-year- 
olds In mind (which Is not meant as a criticism) 
and, to anyone over 17 or so, looks it. 

Moonraker 

For my money Roger Moore will never have 
the style or flair of Sean Connery. This not- 
withstanding Moonraker Is quite an entertain- 
ing film— easily the best since Mr. Moore 
became 007. Moonraker distinguishes itself 
from the other recent Bond films because its 
focus has been shifted : It concentrates less on 
(futilely) trying to reproduce the sheer earthy 
suspense of the Connery series and more on 
adding a larger dose of. humour and more 
fantastic inventions to the film. 

That is not to say that the film Is devoid of 
action; on the contrary, it has plenty of It. The 
difference Is' that now the stunts are so far- 
fetched that one willingly laughs and sus- 
pends disbelief. Some examples: while in the 
old days Connery used to shoot It out with the 
bad guys, Moore’s Bond Is pushed out of an 
airplane without a parachute, and trapped 
directly under a rocket about to blast into 
orbit. The events and characters in the film are 
so much bigger than life that It is probably the 
funniest 007 picture ever made. Mr. Moore fits 
• into this world much more easily than he did* 
Into the Connery role and Moneypenny and M 
are there as always. 

Orchestra Rehearsal 

Frederlco Fellini Is alllve and well and that’s 
nice to know. Casanova was a disappointment 
and we haven’t heard from this cinematic 
master since then. Though Orchestra Rehear- 
sal Is not of the epic proportions of earlier Fel- 
lini works, It recalls the quality and humour of 
the director's better films. 

The movie Is about what the title suggests 
—an orchestra rehearsal. The musicians 
gather In an ancient oratorio where three popes 

September 13, 1979 



are buried. Television Interviewers are present 
and ask the musicians to talk about their 
Instruments. The conductor (Baldwin Baas) 
and the rehearsal begins. Yet almost Immedi- 
ately union representatives demand a break. 
The musicians protest the tyranny of the 
conductor, and overthrow him. A giant metro- 
nome is erected In his place which Is, in turn, 
also toppled. Relating any more of the plot 
would be to give away too much. 

To try to explain In this short space what It 
"means" would be ah injustice to both the 
picture and Fellini. The one thing the film is 
not Is a simple allegory of contemporary Italian 
politics. It Is much more than that; any claim 
to the contrary belittles Fellini’s art. And I 
respect Fellini far too much to try to expound 
upon It In this short space. In addition to 
whatever else It is, Orchestra Rehearsal is 
hilarious. Fellini Is still striking; for now let 
that suffice. 

Players 

Players Is a movie with no particular reason 
for being, except that It Is easy for film critics 
to make Jokes about. The love story is un- 
believable and horribly acted by All MacGraw 
and Dean-Paul Martin. Ms. MacGraw only 
seems to be able to portray one character and 
directors continually try to build films a.round 
It. It seldom works. About the only question 
Players raises is how a classy performer like 
Maximilllan Schell managed to get himself 
Involved In such a awful film. 



The story Is that of a kept woman and a 
tennis hustler, and their love, during and 
around the player’s mythical rise to the top of 
the tennis world. Their love is uncompelling, 
especially because each performer seems In- 
capable of convincing us of the reality of their 
emotions. In fact, the love story was so badly 
received that the producers advertised the 
tennis sequences. And It’s true, the tennis 
sequences (filmed at Wimbledon) were pretty 
good. In fact they were almost, but not quite, 
as good as the tennis you can see on TV any

"Some like the Ghetto character, others like 
the Ghetto characters," comments one hous- 
ing official. While the housing office (Powell 
Student Services Bldg., 3637 Peel St., Rms. 
206, 206A) does not promote the student 
Ghetto, It does include it In the computerized 
listings of available apartments. One cannot 
help wondering whether they had the Ghetto In 
mind when they called their handbook, "It's 
your Money— It's Your Neck". Nevertheless, 
each year this charming 'student district 
attracts a swarm of ambitious, or perhaps 
naive newcomers, students. - 
Where to Live 

While the demand often exceeds the supply 
of available apartments, the Ghetto District is 
one place which still welcomes latecomers 
with open doors. Eager landlords will remind 
you that you had better grab quickly, but never 



rash decisions. While there Is little cream, 
there Is much crop to choose from. 

Neighbourhood Attractions 

As anyone who has read the housing 
handbook knows, the Ghetto is the "area east 
of the campus bordered on the west by 
University Street, on the east by Blvd. St. 
Laurent, north by Pine Avenue and south by 
Sherbrooke Street." The plethora of small 
shops, cafes, and street activities contribute 
to a sense of community, yet each street is 
unique In what It has to offer. - 

Aylmer Is for those who never stopped 
believing In fairytales. To those lacking 
creative spirit, the damsel in distress and 
ferocious fire-breathing dragon mural may 
seem silly, but for those who are still children 
'at heart, the mural provides atmosphere to an 
otherwise dark alley. The real artsies see it as 
symbolic of the student Ghetto experience. 
And while Aylmer does not have a yellow brick 
road, it does have the Yellow Door, an entrance 
to mysterious entertainment and culinary 
concoctions. The hot soups are the next best 
thing to a wish to go'home on a cold winter 
day. 

For those who prefer to read their fairytales, 
The Word, on the corner of Durocher and 
Milton, supplies every kind of second-hand 
book Imaginable. Milton Is also notorious for 
the McGill Pizza Shop ("The Grease"). While 
the food is a far cry from home-cooking, the 
service Is pleasant. Farther down Milton is 
Green’s Superette which stays open later than 
most small grocery stores. 

On the corner of Durocher and Prince Arthur, 
there is a quaint Campus Meat Market for 
those who are too lazy to walk to Steinberg’s,

Harry 
deep-throats it 



by Ann Brocklehurst 

Harry Reams, the male lead In Deep Throat 
and porn star emeritus, sits unnoticed in 
Gertrude’s. The small crowd of transsexuals, 
gaudily made-up drag queens and body 
builders milling around the pub get all the 
attention. 

A former McGill student working as a 
receptionist In the hotel In which Reams Is 
staying Identifies him for the press. 

“Do you know who that Is?” she asks. 
"Harry Reams." 

"The Dally has to Interview hlm. I was talking 
to him earlier. He’ll probably give you an in- 
terview If I ask him. "Let me try." 

She hurries across the room to talk to a slim 
man In jeans and a light blue T-shirt. 

The answer Is affirmative. Reams has 
consented to the Interview but not until later 
that night. 1 

"And do you know what?" the receptionist 
asks. 

“He asked me out." 

"Well are you going?" I inquire, hoping for- 
an exclusive story on the date. 

"No! But look he’s coming over here." 

She Introduces me to Reams who tells me to 
meet him on the set later. "The set" for the 
filming Is McTavIsh Street, Peterson Hall and 
the Union building garage. 

The movie, Reems’ first "clean role"* Is 
called Squad. Reems plays a get tough vice 
squad officer who has just finished tidying up 
one metropolis and has moved on to clean up 
another. His title Is Chief Maclean. His un- 
derlings call him "Mr. Clean”. 

In the scene being filmed a gay beach party 
has just been raided and a bus load of the . 
merry maders are being taken to vice squad 
headquarters.

Reems who Is not part of the scene talks 
about the films. Squad Is an all Canadian 
venture and Reems Is the only non-native cast 
member. a 

He likes Montreal but finds he’s not as 
recognized here as he Is south of the border. 

As for his future In film, Reems hopes to 
make more "non-adult" movies. A highly 
publicized suit against him for his supposed 
role In the distribution of Deep Throat has 
caused him alot of personal anguish and he 
has no desire to repeat the experience. 

The suit, however has made Reems a 
household name and something of a folk hero. 
He admits, though, that the frequent learlng 
remarks and off color jokes sometimes get to 
him. 

Reems has had problems with the press: 
"They always ask the same questions, again 
and again. 

’Do you feel exploited?’ ’How do you keep It 
up when you’re filming?’ 

"I wish that just once some one would ask 
me something really Interesting. Then they 
would have a really good story." 

"Well what do you want to be asked," I 
inquire. Reems won’t tell; 

"It’s up to you to figure It out," he says. 

"Alright then, have you kept In touch with 
Linda Lovelace? Do you know what sh’e doing 



these days?" 

Reems hasn’theard from his notorious Deep 
Throat co-star 'but he’s heard through the 
grapevine that she’s married to a gynecologist 
In Arizona. 

"It’s true," says Reems. 

"I’m not kidding." 

A co-star backs him up. 

"Yeah I’ve heard the same thing, he says. 
"But I heard she was living In Nevada." 

A student In a tennis outfit Interrupts and 
asks Reems to autograph his racket cover. 

"My girlfriend will get a big kick out of It," he 
says. 

Reems signs the cover “keep on strokin’, 
love Harry Reems." Later that evening another 
student asks for Reams’ John Hancock. He 
signs "keep It up, Harry Reems." And when 
Reems Is asked how he likes Montreal he 
replies: "Montreal, I lust you Montreal." 

After about ten minutes the originally 
ebullient Reems becomes fed up with the 
Interview. He’s angry because I don’t know the 
details of his background and his court trial. 
He’s angry because I’m a reporter. "The press 
sometimes exploit me. But I’ve never felt ex- 
ploited by any of the films I’ve made," says 
Reems. 

He retreats Into his furnished van. The in- 
terview Is over.

Rocky II 

Tired of playing a simple prizefighter, Syl- 
vester Stallone has now cast himself as the 
perfect human being. All the character flaws 
were Ironed out by the end of Rocky; there Is 
nothing left except the winning of the 
championship. In Rocky II we are given a 
Rocky who Is a loving husband and brother-in- 
law, dedicated athlete, and a guy who likes 
being with kids. Thus we are given absolutely 
flat characters who do not change. This Is not 
the stuff of which good movies are made. The 
fight sequence Is workmanlike but It Is not 
nearly enough. 

.Woyzeck 

- Werner Herzog's film of Bruchner's 19th 
century play is the most compelling film of the 
season. The story Is that of a private in the 
German army who is given to madness and 
murder by a world that has nothing but abuse 
for him. But Herzog's fl|m Is more than the 
story of an oppressed man. His Woyzeck Is not 
a part of the world he exists In : he Hears voices 



and always for some Inexplicable reason, 
rushes to do all that Is required of him. The 
film Is not a polemic about a society that cares 
not for individuals (though that Is a part of it). 
Herzog, as always, peers into the darker side 
of the human psyche; he raises issues that are 
frightening, and difficult to grasp. One senses 
that If the things dealt with were simple, 
Herzog would’t bother with them. 

Klaus Kinski Is perfect for the part of 
Woyzeck; without him the film would not be 
what It Is. He portrays a man simultaneously 
oppressed, possessed and enraged so con- 
vincingly that his screen presence is virtually 
unavoidable. Eva Mattes gives an Intelligent 
performance as Wyozeck's mistress whom he 
eventually murders. 

Woyzeck Is not so blatantly surrealistic as 
several of Herzog's other films. I’ve no idea 
whether this Is good or bad, but Woyzeck is 
certainly one of his very best. As In the best of 
his work Herzog shows us things hidden, and 
hard-to-get-at facets of ourselves that, once 
uncovered, we may find difficult to look at. He 
leads us Into mazes out of which there are no 
shortcuts.

Records: Nils Lofgren 



by H.D. Kader 

Nils, Nils Lofgren [A&MJ 

Nils Lofgren has never quite made it 
commercially. He’s been close though. 
Despite his association with Neil Young on the 
classic LP Crazy Horse and the popularity of 
his single "I Came To Dance", a fog seems to 
envelope this singer-songwriter, clouding over 
his Image. 

It is with this problem that Nils deals on his 
latest album. Caught up in the hype and 
hypnosis of constant touring and yearly- 
mediocre album releases, Lofgren had come to 
a fork In the road of creativity. Like so many 
rock musicians do, he lost credibility with his 
audiences and became Just another singer with 
the phallo-centric electric guitar. This, his 
ninth LP, has the artist giving a little effort, a 
little sweat and as a result, producing an 
enjoyable, entertaining piece of music. 

Included are three pieces co-written with 
Lou Reed, while Reed’s latest release has three 
with Lofgren. Baltimore Is Lofgren’s home- 
town, and for this reason he does a remake of 
Randy Newman’s "Baltimore’’. This song Is 
quite depressing and sums a lot of what’s 
wrong with urban America. 

The track "Shine Silently” conveys to the 
listener the harmonic versatility of Lofgren’s 
vocal ability. "A Fool Like Me" Is the album’s 
potential AM hit, sounding very much like a 
Todd Rundgren song. "No Mercy" Is the story 
of a boxer who must literally destroy his 
opponent to please the cheering hordes, with 



crowd sounds recorded live at Madison Square 
Gardens. 

Nils is a well-produced slick release which 
contains many sparks of genius. This LP may 
be the return from obscurity for this talented 
musician. 

Snapl, The Late Show [London] 

New Wave has not only survived Its critics’ 
worst assaults, It’s come to dominate the 
record industry in 1979. More New Wave 
releases filled the racks in record stores this 
past year than any other form of music. In fact, 
New Wave is no longer a homogenous 
collection of musical entitles. 

The erratic quirky chords of the Talking 
Heads have been copied by many groups, yet a 
mellowing of the movement has led to recent 
albums which sound amazingly like those of 
the early sixties. The Late Show is a five-piece 
band from Kent, England. They admit that 
their material is for the most part “tongue-in- 
cheek", yet stress that they do get cynical at 
times. With song titles such as “My Love 
Sticks Out For You" and "Ain’t Gonna Stamp 
On His Face", we can tell that the British wit 
Isn’t lacking with these guys, They sound a lot 
like the early Beatles especially when they do 
their own version of “Chains". 

The album Is certainly tame enough for the 
North American record buyer, but the exposure 
this band has been receiving to this date 
indicates that the Late Show will probably not 
become familiar fare on this side of the 
Atlantic. 



Waning moon shines 



The Waning Moon Cafô 
[or the Ed Sullivan Show] 

Centaur Theatre 
until September 15 

* by Robert Janes 

Codco is a group of loony performers that 
have brought to the Centaur Theatre a show 
known as the "Waning Moon Café." The “Café" 
Is the launching pad for an evening of "off the 
wall" sketches. This type of show is usually 
described as "fun-filled", "lively", "wacky”, 
and especially, “zany". Such words hardly do 
Justice to the hour and a half of perversion- 
drenched, near total insanity that is nothing 
short of hysterical. 

The group Is from Newfoundland, a fact 
that lets itself be known in most of the 
sketches. Or at least it starts that way, with 
"Tales of Newfoundland,” a backyard barbecue 
with some Newfie couples. The tone Is 
stringently satiric Including downhome banter 
about booze, pills, cancer and general bodily 
dysfunctions. 



The actors aim for what may be gently 
described as "raunchy," and unerringly 
succeed in hitting their mark. A sample of the 
jokes: "You’re looking well, did you have a 
face lift? No, I Just put a little Preparation H 
under my eyes." 

If all this sounds like sophomoric humour 
from the pages of National Lampoon, that is 
because It Is. What saves it from being merely 
stupid grotesquerie is the brilliance of the 
players. Cathy Jones, Tommy Sexton, Mary 
Walsh, Andy Jones and Bryan Hennessey 
manage to carry off the heavy, often silly, and 
totally unstructured material with such pan- 
ache that the pace never slackens, and the 
show never fails to be truly funny. Rather than 
treat the show as some kind of frathouse 
follies, they Imbue It all with a wonderful 
sense of "joie de vivre," the sign of true 
artistry. The humour is often rough, but always 
funny. "The Waning Moon Café" should get 
this year’s award for best show of total 
insanity.

A look 
at the 

Pin-Ups 



by Dermot Kelly 

The picture Is an out-take of the official 
Pinups promo shot: drummer Dave Hanson Is 
laughing, the statuesque bassist Sass Turner 
has forsaken her usual far-off gaze for a more 
familiar graduation photo style grin, guitarist 
Chris Robbins is daydreaming, and resident 
gultar-whiz Sean Donnelly is staring as If he 
were "the chosen one". Otherwise, the shot 
has the same gloss as its official counterpart: 
it's just that the group is a step closer to reality 
than they usually are. When you see the 
Pinups’ promo photos you Just wonder how 
much they must cost; you marvel at the 
technicolour splash of this young band and 
perhaps you are a little disgusted. Well, try to 
be amused and bear with me. 

The Pinups dress in black and white with 
ties and badges proclaiming the pop groups of 
ten years ago, but they really don't come 
across as loveable comic book heroes like, 
say, Cheap Trick does. What they're selling 
Isn't really sex appeal, kinkiness or quirky 
unpredictable personalities; It’s pop. Pop is 
what happened with the Beatles; only that was 
a time of innocence before the world at large 
had had a chance to digest this peculiar 
American music that is rock 'n' roll. What 
happens to you when you hear the Pinups is at 
first very much what happens to you when you 
see their promotional poster; you are shocked 
by the unreality of accessible affluence. 



What Is the Weekly? 

On this the fifth anniversary of the Weekly’s 
birth we who have known the Weekly 
intimately have yet to find the answer to that 
and other questions. Still we plod on and 
continue to create what we consider to be the 
finest cultural-entertainment newspaper at 
McGill. Yes, it is the only cultural-entertain- 
ment newspaper at McGill. 

Sure we're the enVy of the faceless masses 
who peruse our efforts over and under the 
délectables in the Students’ Union Cafeterià. 
Sure we put the Calvin Klein set to shame with 
our impeccable taste and refined lifestyles, 
sure Eleanor and Francis Ford Coppola have 1 
tried to buy us for good reviews. We remain 
humble. 

In fact we at the Weekly open our doors to 
every student. Come and join our ranks. 

Those with an interest in film, theatre, art, 
dance, or music, those who feel they've got 
their finger on the throbbing pulse of popular 
culture, and those with an overwhelming 
desire to see their own deathless prose printed 
over several thousand times and scattered 
across the lawns of McGill are Indeed 
welcome. Join us in the bowels of the 
Students' Union ln"B03E. 

Most sincerely yours, 
Gail Heimann 




herein Montréal'. 'Not In Memphis’ and not in 



A couple of minutes into their set, the 
message of the Pinups seems to be: "Look 
how rich you could be in this pop business!” A 
couple of numbers later though, something 
else happens to the rapt listener; you forget 
about all the money they’re planning to make 
from your children and you listen to the songs 
they sing. You find them too clean perhaps, a 
trifle smug? Hell, nol Any pop act that wanted 
to keep their Image clean wouldn't soil 
themselves at some of the clubs these guys 
have played in. If they were really as smug as 
they seem, then they wouldn't take the risks 
that they take. For example, at a sophisticated 
nightclub like the Maples Inn, Sean wanders 
through the crowd playing his guitar and 
pouring beer on his head. 

These guys are becoming a pop phenome- 
non! In a club where motorcyclists holler for 
Black Sabbath and their girlfriends want Billy 
Joel, the Pinups come on and say, "This Is a 
song by the Monkees.” Then they play "Last 
Train to Clarksville". Jaws drop. The girls stare 
and their boyfriends don't quite know what to 
do. The Pinups are the centre of attention and 
whatever It Is they’re doing, they're doing It 
well because everyone Is dazed. The Pinups 
make you remember a sweet time before you 
ever bought a record; they resurrect the ghost 
of childhood pastl Not that the Pinups want 
you to stop buying records: quite the contrary. 
Still, there’s a glimpse of Innocence to be had 
at a Pinups show that’s not even hinted at 
anywhere else in town. Their blend of 
American and British pop is pleasant because 
it’s romantic. Not the way Dan Hill is 
romantic; at their best, the Pinups are all 
there. The chords of the Ronettes’ "And Then 
He Kissed Me" chime like cloying relics from 
another age. They worked a charm on this 
critic’s ears. The real romance of the Pinups at 
their best Is that they use this golden age stuff 
as a springboard into the future. 

So far then, we have wrestled two things In 
our pondering of the Pinups: we have 
established that they are confident that not 
only are there still pop groups who can make a 
living playing what they want to play, but that 
they can make it to the top and It can start right 



Liverpool. Here. At McGill in fact, this 
Saturday night. The second thing we have 
established wrestling with such monstrous 
ambition Is that the music It makes can bo 
genuinely affecting. The Pinups want to be the 
best band on the planet; they let you know this 
with wonderful Irony by Ignoring the fact that 
Elvis Presley ever existed and by gleefully 
lumping the Beatles with the Kinks, the 
Ramones, the Who, the Monkees, the 
Ronettes and all the other great pop acts of the 
mid-twentieth century. It's that kind of 
Irreverence that I enjoy most of all and that’s 
where the future comes Into It. Sean mimics 
Elvis Costello, Ian Dury and the rest quite 
nicely, but that’s not the point. The point Is 
that we can only fly in the face of an 
oppressive pop past by assimilating what is 
good about It, and that Is our memories of It. 
In that context, then, the context of classic 
rock and good popular entertainment, the 
Pinups shouldn’t by any means be an object of 
disgust. Part' of every great entertainer’s 
genius Is commercial and it would be a 
mistake to dismiss the Pinups on account of 
their monstrous ambition. That’s a part of all 
those flawed jewels we choose to treasure 
from Bruce Springsteen to Chuck Berry. As I 
said, memories of John Lennon are more 
Important than the man himself, especially if 
you want to grow up and be a Beatle as the 
Pinups clearly do. It's a mysterious process 
the way pop affects our lives. Go watch the 
Pinups on Saturday night in the Union 
Ballroom and decide for yourself. 

Meanwhile, on the radio a new wave of rock 
music is replacing the disco that has 
dominated the airwaves In recent years and 
alienated so many of us hard-thinking rockers. 
And the Pinups are driving home watching the 
autumn sun rise over the sloping streets of 
N.D.G. or the new roads of the West Island. 
These aren’t schooldays anymore, they must 
think, as the noise of the night-before rings In 
their ears and the cash registers of the future 
loom up promising them, seductively, like the 
girls they sing to, and have sung to for fifteen 
of the last nineteen nights. Dave beats an 
anxious rhythm on his thighs. Maybe Sean 
waxes poetic thinking of his days as a folkle at 
John Abbott’s Oval Coffee House or those 
nights as a punk-rocker in Old Montreal. 
Everywhere guys are turning over In their sleep 
dreaming restlessly of that predatory growl 
Sass uses to break open Blondle's "Hangln’ On 
The Telephone". Chris will make up a little 
song as he does the breakfast dishes. If it's 
good, he’ll write it down. You see, looking out 
his window In Montreal he’s hoping to find that 
place somewhere In between Glenn Camp- 
bell’s Galveston and the Guess Who’s 
Winnipeg. Once Chris gets that feeling in a 
tune, Sean might forget Ritchie Blackmore 
ever existed and play something that’ll make 
us remember the first time we ever heard a big 
full electric guitar on the radio. A chorus to 
shout out and Dave pummelling his drums, 
getting behind them like a boxer, it’s really the 
only way to say a prayer for Keith Moon. In 
fact, it's really the only way to dance, so go on 
Saturday night : it’s called a rock 'n' roll dance, 
sort of like a square dance but a bit more free 
form, you know? Like when you brought home 
those first '45s and had a discotheque jukebox 
In your own front room. Remember?

PhDs also have another 
problem — overeducation. 
Cornish says employers . are 
reluctant to hire someone who 
Is overqualified for a Job and 
this has led to PhDs actually 
hiding their degrees from an 
employer to get hired. 

Another part of the survey

Cornish advises students to: 

• Take summer or part-time 
work In your field if possible In 
order to learn what the Job 
would be like and make cont- 
acts for the future. "I can’t 
stress Its Importance enough," 
he says. 

• Sell yourself to an employ- 
er, going back a few times to 
convince the employer you 
really do want the Job. 

• Finally, use all the Inform- 
ation available. The StatsCan
